There are many reasons to print your photos, and there are many people who like having photographic prints from their favorite artists. So, you may want to sell prints through your website, and I say – go for it! However, there are some things to have in mind before you start, and some huge mistakes that could cost you your time, patience, and money. Evan Ranft made them all, he’s learned a lot from them, and he’s now passing this knowledge on to you so you don’t make the same mistakes.
I believe that most people print photos only on special occasions once in a Blue Moon. But the new Google Photos test subscription wants to make photo printing a habit. It helps you select the ten best photos you took every month. It will then order prints for you, and they will be delivered to your address.
Despite the fact that we live in the digital era, printing your photos is still a fantastic way to preserve your precious memories (or make a creative project). Google Photos has introduced a new feature that lets you order prints straight through the app and pick them from a local CVS Pharmacy or Walmart store the same day. Along with the new printing feature, Google Photos has some more changes, all revolving around reliving your memories.
I received a letter from Costco that the location I frequent for my 8lbs of ground beef and jumbo bottle of vodka is closing their photo department.
Because in spite of more pictures being taken now than in any time in the history of photography, people are simply not printing their snapshots and, because of this rapid decline in printing volume, it makes no financial sense to keep the photo department open.
And after reading this letter, I have one thing to say:
People…WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Does your camera resolution matter when you need to choose the side of the print? This is what many people wonder, and basically, it’s not important. If you can take a photo with your camera, print it at 6 x 4 inches and be happy with it – you can print that same photo in basically any size that you like. In this video, James Popsys will tell you in a simple language why megapixels aren’t important when choosing the size of your print.
If you’re using Apple’s Photo Print Products service, there is little time left to place your orders. Apple is soon to discontinue its photo printing service, and the final orders must be placed by the end of September.
She can’t remember things like she used to. It started gradually-she’d forget a name or a birthday or where she parked her car. And then, she found herself forgetting every day things, those things one must remember in order to live life. She would forget to go to the grocery store; she’d forget a conversation that occurred ten minutes earlier; she would forget to eat dinner.
They call it Dementia, and it is, although the word is more of an umbrella term that covers many types of memory loss. And Dementia, well, it’s a tricky thing, because even those systems and techniques created to stir the memory and bring things to mind don’t always work. I mean, a calendar does no good if you can’t remember to look at the calendar each day, right? You forget that you don’t remember.
My mom was a florist. She used to say you can always tell a florist by their thumb. Each floral stalk must be cut prior to refrigeration and cut again when incorporated into a design, so if the inside of the thumb is rough and slightly discolored, with tiny slices lining the soft padding, like a hundred tiny paper cuts, you’re talking to a florist.
In the age of digital photography, few people still print their images. We are used to storing them on clouds, hard drives, and other digital mediums. But there are reasons why printing shouldn’t be forgotten and why it’s still an important part of the photography process. In his video, Peter McKinnon gives some excellent points about it. Even if you’ve completely switched to digital – there are a few good reasons why printing the photos is still relevant and irreplaceable.
There are plenty of misconceptions about the number of pixels, resolution, image size and so on, which can make us quite confused sometimes. To make things worse, the terms DPI (dots per inch) and PPI (pixels per inch) are often used interchangeably, which makes the understanding even more difficult.
Essentially, DPI is important for printers. It’s a number of color dots printer uses to reproduce colors of the image. It’s also used for screen resolution, although PPI can also refer to screens as well. PPI applies to everything in relation to resolution and the size of a digital image.
In this video, you will see a brief explanation about DPI and how important is this value for printing big formats. How big is big enough? Does size matter at all?
